.5 trillion input into the economy, they help to maintain our social security system. we know that we're now a majority, children majority minority are being born inn now in the united states these kids will help beef up our social security system which we have got to strengthen right now. >> so you think looking at washington, that in this second term, the first year of the second term, the approximate it can deal with such important critical economic issues like raising the nation's set ceiling, but he can also deal with comprehensive immigration reform and also deal with the issue of gun safety out there, all three of these issues, do you think the president could juggle at the same time with congress? >> i know president barack obama, that's not the real question. the answer is yes, that's not the real question, the question is request the congress. remember the last congress was the least productive congress in 50, of years, maybe longer. and this congress has got to move in another direction, they have got to be able to chew gum and walk at the same time, yes, it doesn't feel like it b
's my challenge to everyone. instead of just a 2% economy, why can't we do so much better and get to a 4 or 5% growth economy? president obama has still not adopted progrowth policy. here's another thing. i'm not the only one who wants the president and congress to significantly cut spending. i mean, significantly. it would be progrowth and no more tax hikes by the way. spending and the debt are the top issue of concern for voters. look, these heinous mass murders are not about weapons. question -- why isn't anyone tackling the really tough issue that may be the root causes of these atrocities? such as broken families, such as the absence of fathers who set examples for their sons? such as the loss of faith in our schools? such as our homes and our culture that have lost faith as well. tonight, we are going to talk about the family values breakdown in america. "the kudlow report" begins right now. another key point tonight. for most of the history, america drew at 3.5% per you. the last dozen years however, we have dropped below 2%. and the so-called obama recovery is just a tad above th
, the first priority, bob, is obviously to continue to grow the economy, focus on the middle class, and getting people in the middle class. that's the core mission of the country. we've, obviously, are beginning to recover from the recession, but we have a lot more work to do. but if you look at some-- yes, we have some political divisions in this country. there's vast support out there for balanced deficit reduction, investments in education and manufacturing, immigration reform, gun safety. so on the issues the president intends to really push and focus on, there's massive support in the country, even among republicans. let's not lose sight of that, and that's why we're going to do a better job in the second term-- while we're going to do all we can to work with congress and negotiate, to also make sure the american people are connected to what's going on here. i think to really get the kind of change here in washington the american people are going to demand it. but there is really, i think, consensus around eye lot of the issues around the country >> what about the idea the rep
economy hostage. if the house can pass a clean debt ceiling increase and meeting the existing obligations we will be happy to consider it. here we are as i said three days before inauguration and it looks like another fight that the republicans are not prepared to it seems to follow through on despite the threats. >> zachary and i were having a conversation in the green room and i said i don't understand the meaning of a second inauguration for the president. i get it now. the reason we need another inauguration is apparently one party doesn't understand we had an election in november and they lost. which means that you move on and you let the president be the president of the united states. these guys still want to fight the old battles of 2012. >> but they're giving this extension now. >> a three-month extension. the white house should tell them to go shove it. you can't run a government three months at a time. you have to have a long-term planning. bad for the markets. bad for the country. bad for the economy. let's make clear, definitive decisions. you lost. let's come together and co

on the need to reduce the deficit in a balanced way that will help the economy grow, amongst democrats on the hill, and, a few republicans, the barrier to progress here is not the president. we need to see more republicans and congress -- in congress willing to compromise, even on revenues. >> chris: they say they need to see the president willing to compromise on spending cuts and entitlement reform. >> let's look at what we offered speaker boehner. it is public. $400 billion in health care savings we offered, and $200 billion of additional cuts in domestic spending and a trillion dollars in savings and look at where we started the negotiated process and the speaker, we went more than halfway. >> chris: is the president still willing to adjust the cost of living increase for entitlements, is he still willing to raise the eligibility age for medicare? are those still on the table? >> i will not talk about specifics that may be in the package. it is will report in the discussions with speaker boehner we were willing to entertain the cost of living adjustment. but, the overall package, w

, the biggest challenge awaiting our new president was economy and free fall and big achievement for the auto industry and bringing the economy back from the brink. with unemployment where it was after republicans have the white house dragged out in debates like marginal interest rates and crises like the debt ceiling, we are left wondering, when it comes to the economy can the president do big things? washington post columnist ezra klein is an msnbc policy analyst and editor for "the washington post." hi, e.j. and rezra. nice to be in d.c. and be with you guys. are there big things left to do on the economy or are we twin kerring with the tax code? >> we are going to be blinding out a series of big things. this is going to be the tough thing about it. in the first term, what you have is big things that eventually over a long period of time happen at once. president obama sat down, page and protection act into law and health care reform was done. when we look at deficit reduction, it's four or five deals, each one in endless, horrible slog through the d.c. marshes. in the second term the two
automatically because our debt is going to grow along with our economy from year to year. especially it's going to grow in times when we need to spend a little more to juice our economy. but you know, bernanke has very little credibility with the republican party because republican leadership last year actually sent letters to him saying stop with your quantitative easing and your other extraordinary measures to juice this economy. they're already angry at him, so him saying we should from the debt ceiling is not going to do anything in congress. >> part of the problem is the debt seems to go up and good times and bad times and no one ever seems to have the courage to cut it, but it's a very bipartisan thing in terms of raising it. 76 times it's been raised since 1962. and the number one president in terms of raising it, the winner is ronald reagan at 17 times. that might shock people who like to see him as the paragon of responsible spending. >> we'll start with the deficit, shrinking more rapidly than at any time since the end of the korean war. in the end of december, we had a deficit for th
tomorrow? >> there's atmospheric differences. we had an economy collapsing all around us and he was a first term president and still putting together his team and agenda and cabinet and still the economy is too weak but recovering and the question is right now building on that as opposed to simply trying to stem the bleeding. there's a big difference and i think the experience of the office, as you know, you know, that helps a lot and so i think he does have even more sure-footedness in his approach. >> it can become a bit of a burden. historians write about the second term curse and i know you and your team spent a lot of time studying how to avoid that. what's the key? >> well, i think, listen, if you look at president clinton's second term, he made significant progress on balanced budgets and ronald reagan accomplished tax reforms. >> even if they're dealing with other problems. >> and we have been fortunate to be scandal-free and we want to continue that, but if you look, it's not like we're roaming around the west wing looking for things to do. right now in front of congress and the co

. they are badly designed and they are damaging the venezuelan economy. the economy is, frankly, in shambles. barclay's research puts venezuela's annual fiscal deficit at nearly 20% of gdp, one of the highest imbalances in the world. total debt has more than doubled since 2008. and that is despite the fact that venezuela has the greatest proven reserves of oil in the world. more than saudi arabia, iran or canada. when hugo chavez first came to power in 1999, oil was trading at $11 a barrel. today, it is trading at $111 a barrel. chavez has presided over the greatest windfall in his country's history. and, yet, venezuela is probably the only petro state in the world where people regularly suffer power outages. infrastructure is crumbling and public security is abysmal. venezuela has one of the worst homicide rates in the world, worse even than colombia, honduras and mexico. a recent foreign affairs essay pointed out that venezuelan exports to the u.s. from the start of chavez's rule through 2011 added up to nearly $350 billion. that's iconic for a presidency which marketed itself as anti-amer

for not crashing the american economy. >> the president rejected calls from senate democrats to use some form of an 11th hour executive action. whether it is the 14th amendment, minting a coin, whatever, to side step congress and raise the debt limit unilaterally. >> are you considering a plan b? and if not -- >> well, chuck, the issue here is whether or not america pays its bills. we are not a deadbeat nation. there are no magic tricks here. there are no loopholes. >> to explain the thinking of the white house and why no plan b is this. the president believes its republicans who should own all of the political uncertainty on any default debt crisis. and he wants to avoid handing the gop a get-out-of-jail card. the white house believes if they help republicans come up with a temporary fix, like going around them find something other way, democrats share in some of the political chaos that would ensue. the president pressed his point by rattling off constituency groups that will feel the pain if treasury can no longer pay its bills. >> if congressional republicans refuse to pay america's bills
for the economy. what are you seeing? >> well, 2012 was the year housing really made its statement at its back. it's not back to where it was, but surely we can now say housing has turned the corner so that's a good thing for the economy. when housing does well, everything else seems to do well. quite a multiplier effect. in fact, there's been no recovery in this country of size or stability without housing participating or leading. energy is doing pretty well. we see some manufacturing, but to be honest about it, the recovery is still not as strong as it needs to be. there's still too much uncertainty, and there needs to be more clarify for the economy to take off. >> a really important point because i think businesses are, you know, shaping up and are currently in great shape in terms of cash on balance sheets. >> terrific. >> so they have the potential to put money to work, although that uncertainty factor is really keeping them from doing so. >> in fact, corporate balance sheets have never been better. liquidity, cash, we've grown 300 billion in core deposits in four years. you know, consumer

this debt ceiling pretty much to -- you know, as the democrats like to say, to take the economy hostage, to demand spending cuts. they have backed off of that, looking at some plan to raise the debt ceiling at least for the next three months, to give some time for those talks to happen. and there is a big challenge in coming together, because the president still really feels like absolutely, the debt needs to be focus on, it's a huge issue, big priority, but it needs to be done in a balanced way so that all the spending cuts are not focused on programs for those who are most vulnerable. so we'll see. >> so ana, do you think that the debt ceiling will set the tone between the president and congress? >> no. i think we're going to get a short reprieve. i think we're talking about, you know, what the republicans were talking about, i was actually at the gop retreat that maria just referenced and it's a possible three-month extension. but at some point, the problem, the whole problem, has got to be dealt with in a holistic way. the deficit has got to be dealt with. debt has got to be dealt w
